    Today was the February Birthday Party. First there were some awards given for children of the Kindergarten who did exceptionally well at art. The Kindergarten itself was also given an award to recognize this achievement. There were a lot of children who have their birthday in February and they could also say their name and how old they were in a big voice. After all of these children got their birthday cards from their friends Mr.Shay and Mr.Dan started to talk about magic. Mr.Shay tried to do a trick for Mr.Dan who wasn’t impressed. However, the Magic King appeared to perform several magic tricks for them and the children. This included tricks such as making a rose appear, making a magic wand longer and making a handkerchief disappear. Everyone was was very impressed and a lot of fun was had. The final trick involved a big explosion and a resounding Happy Birthday! Once again thank you to all the parents who attended the Birthday Party and a big Happy Birthday to all the Birthday Children.
    今日は、北海道教育美術展と全国教育美術展という絵画のコンクールで賞をとったお子さまに賞状渡しを行ないました。今日配布したInformationにもお知らせさせていただきましたが、全国教育美術展では、本園が「地区学校賞 教育美術奨励賞」という素晴らしい賞を受賞しました。今回賞をとったことで更に自信がついたお子さま、友達が賞をとったことで刺激を受けたお子さま、園が賞をとったことに喜びを感じたお子さまなど、一人ひとりのお子さまにとって絵を描くことがもっと好きになったり、意欲や興味を増すことができるように、教師一同更にサポートに力を入れてまいります!今回受賞したお子さま達には、保護者の皆さまからも、たくさんのお褒めの言葉を伝えてあげてくださいね。

    今日は、年中・年長 スタンダードクラスの俳句発表会でした。4月からクラスで取り組んできた俳句活動。年中組は、クラスで考えた、たくさんの俳句の中から1つに厳選した“あいうえお俳句”をクラスみんなで、年長組は季語を取り入れた5・7・5でつくられた“俳句”を3人のお子さま達が発表しましたよ。友達の前に出て、大きな声で自信をもって発表するお子さま達の姿に1年の成長を感じつつ、読まれた俳句の情景をイメージしながら年長組の俳句を聞いた年中組のお子さま達の中には、5・7・5に合わせて、指を折りながら数をかぞえ早速、俳句づくりを始める姿も見られました。これからも、楽しく俳句に触れてくれることを願っています。
    The Immersion children had lots of fun today! Classes 1, 4, and 7 could enjoy a whole day together. We had morning discovery time followed by exercise. Then, the children got to meet 3 special characters who had games and activities for them. Phonics Police Officer had alphabet letter writing and spelling games, Captain Planet had English Conversation Time, and the Storybook King helped some Class 7 children read their English storybooks. The children all tried hard and were very interested in the storybooks seniors wrote. They tried hard answering quizzes as well. After we finished, we ate lunch and played together until it was time to go home. It was so nice to see the children speaking English to each other while having fun. This school year is almost finished and today’s All Immersion Day was wonderful!

    We had a very busy day in Class 1 today…very busy, but very fun!
    After playing with Class 2 in the morning, we had our Morning Meeting and then Enpitsu-kun came to give us a Japanese writing lesson. Today’s lesson was writing from 1 ~ 5 on their worksheets. Everyone did very nicely and their ability to write their names by themselves is getting better each week. We then had the 2nd day of Junior Shopping, with Koala Class joining us. It was lots of fun being shopkeepers and helping to show our Pre-School friends how to buy things using English. We then had time for another jump rope challenge, with all of the children managing to jump 10 times by themselves! Tomorrow will be lots of fun with our last ‘All Immersion Day’ of the school year. Great job everyone and see you all in the morning.
  • 2019.02.25避難訓練

    OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

    今日は今年度、最後の避難訓練がありました。今回は”地震”が起きたことを想定して訓練に取り組みました。お子さま達は今までの避難訓練での経験やお家で教えてもらったことをしっかりと思い出し、地震を知らせる警報が聞こえるとすぐに、部屋の中心に集まり、ダンゴムシのポーズをとって身を守ることができていましたよ。また、その他にも揺れがおさまってから、教師の話を聞き、まもるんボックスを持って幼稚園の外に避難することを想定した動きも確認しました。最後は、担任の先生と地震が起こったときの避難方法を振り返ったり、改めて、命を守ることの大切さについての話を聞いたお子さま達でした。今年度の避難訓練はこれが最後となりましたが、どのような時でも自分の身を守ることができるように、これからも避難訓練に取り組んでいってくださいね。
  • 2019.02.22Junior English Open Class

    123

    Today was the English Open Class for Class 1. We all received ‘rocket tickets’ from Eddie-kun the Class 1 puppet yesterday, inviting us to join him in space! We got on the rocket and flew into space, only to learn that there were ‘bad aliens’ in space and that Eddie-kun needed our help! The children did a fantastic job of describing the ‘bad aliens’, if they had spots, stripes or checks and how many horns, eyes and tusks they had before their partners shot the correct alien with water guns! The children’s English abilities have grown so much throughout the past 11 months and it was fantastic to see them use English confidently in front of their parents. Thank you again to all of the mummies and daddies for taking the time to come and watch and support your children today.


    Both Class 2 and Class 3 had their English Classes today. A few weeks ago, the Bad Witch came and changed our yummy food into boring shapes. She gave us a challenge to get English Power to turn them back. The Junior classes have worked very hard to learn about shapes and build up their English Power. Today was the last challenge. The children became shopkeepers and customers at the Junior Restaurant, asking their friends, “What do you want?” “I want a triangle!” Everyone used a big voice and got lots of English Power. Then we called the Good Witch, and used the magic word “Abracadabra!” to change the shapes back into yummy foods. We were very impressed with the children’s energy and English use today. Thank you to all of the parents for coming, and we look forward to the children’s progress in English in the future.

    Class 4
    Today we had a wonderful time in Class 4! The children were all excited to help their friend Peter the Pig. They could do many challenges to help him! The children had English Conversation Time, sang the song “Sing-a-ling”, did a spelling challenge, and also did a world quiz. For the world quiz, the children described country flags and landmarks like “It has a yellow eagle and three stripes,” as well as say what food people in those countries eat. Other children listened carefully and guessed what country it is like, “Is it Egypt?” When all the challenges were cleared, the children got to meet Peter since they helped him. We were so impressed that each child spoke lots of English to answer questions and describe many things. Everyone did so well and had lots of fun. Thank you very much to the families for coming today and your continued support. It has been a wonderful year and we will make the most of the remaining time!

    Class 5 and 6
    Classes 5 and 6 had a great time today helping Mr. Zookeeper and his animals at I.Y.K. Zoo. We traveled around the world to India, China, Japan, Australia, and Egypt to look for nice, warm clothes for the animals. The children could say where each animal was from in a big, confident voice, “It’s from China / India / Japan / Australia / Egypt.” Everyone also asked “What do you need?” and answered by saying “I need a hat / scarf / jacket / glove / boot” in a clear voice. We even got to see their special animal dance at the end, and we had so much fun! We were so impressed that the children could use so much English. Everyone did a great job! Thank you to all of the parents who took the time to join us today. The children were so excited to see you. Well done, classes 5 and 6!

    Class 7
    Today was the Senior English Open Class for Class 7. The children storybooks had been taken away by Mr. English Stories. He had also set the children several challenges as the books were kept in a safe with a special combination. First, the children completed the song and vocabulary game challenge to gain the first number. They knew a lot of different countries in English and could make a song together. The next challenge was the spelling challenge and it was impressive to see that the children could write so many words and be confident in English. Next was the interview challenge where the children could talk about what they did yesterday to the friends and find different members of Class 7 to interview. And finally there was the story maker challenge where the children put back together different story books about some of the other English teachers at the kindergarten. The children could finally open the safe and all of the storybooks were there along with a letter. The letter revealed that Mr. English Stories was Enchou Sensei and he had been watching the children all along. Once again I would like to extend a warm thank you to all the parents who attended this open class and I hope you could see your child’s growth in English.
    Class 8 and 9
    Classes 8 and 9 did a great job helping all the athletes to find their sports equipment and get on the right planes to go home. All of the children were able to use big confident voices to ask each other today’s target questions, “What does he / she need?” to find out what sports equipment they need and “Where is he / she from?” to find out what plane they needed to get on. They were also able to correctly identify different sports based on what the athlete was wearing and when to use ‘He’ or ‘She’. Everyone did a wonderful job of showing their parents what they learned this year. Thank you again to all the parents that took the time to join us today and show the children their support. Congratulations to classes 8 and 9 for a super job!
